“What Stood Before: An artist’s view of the Bay Area’s demolished past” at the FLOAT Gallery, Oakland, through November 13

Between the 1980s and the early 2000s, four San Francisco Bay Area artists—Jan Watten, Janeyce Ouellette, Craig Riedel and Allison F. Walton—unintentionally chronicled the region’s demolished past. 

From views of the old San Francisco skyline to abandoned Muni buses to industrial areas and freeways long since gone, the black and white images offer a glimpse back.
